I just had a look at it on the Alpkit site, is it a 'knock off' of the tent that Richard1905 is looking at? I couldn't consider myselfit because I only favour side entrances, it's my age you know! Not so flexible anymore, I need a 'roll in, roll out' door!



Actually, gwm; the Alpkit Soloist is not like any of the other tents that I have been looking at. The Terra Nova Southern Cross and the Wechsel Exogen have an additional pole perpendicular to the main pole that runs along the length of the tent. The Nordisk Svalbard is a different animal altogether - a 2 hoop tunnel tent.

You are right, I obviously didn't look closely enough, I was just influenced by the entrance, the flat slope made them look looked very similar to me.

So many designs nowadays. Sometimes I think tent designers come up with a different pole configuration just to make their tents look different.
